If you haven’t already known, HFB is one of the five bloggers taking part in the SOYJOY GI-JOY Challenge (Yes you can vote for him, the thorn among the roses every 3 hours, all the way till 28 Jun, midnight). So him being HFB, he can’t resist but give his views on how those SOYJOY bars tasted. There are currently 4 different flavours available in the local market – Apple, Raisin Almond, Cacao Orange & Hawthorn Berry. Last checked, NTUC was selling $1.70 per bar.

If you have a sweet tooth, the apple flavour will probably be your favourite – HFB find it the sweetest among the four. The foremost taste to strike your palate would be that of the dried apple and pineapple. HFB also likes the walnut that gave it that extra crunch.

HFB is fond of the raisin almond bar for the fact that the flavour of the almond nuts was evident. If you grew up loving raisins, then this is the bar for you!

You know how chocolate and orange are pretty compatible in taste – and the cacao orange bar didn’t disappoint, however though the orange peel gave a refreshing tang to the taste buds, the chocolate is a tad bitter and made the bar slightly harder to bite.

Although HFB is not a big fan of sour fare, he thought the hawthorn berry complimented well with the sweeter ingredients like Dried Wolfberry. He enjoyed the sour-sweet blend. And if you are like HFB, wondering what is hawthorn berry – it is actually a tiny red berry that grows on the hawthorn shrub, and is said to contain strong antioxidant properties believed to be many times more powerful than the antioxidant vitamins, A, C and E! Amazing isn’t it?

But what’s more amazing is that SOYJOY is giving out the bars for FREE in “Feed The Office” task!!!
